How to Create the Peachy Perfection
Unravel the Simplicity of Summer Pork Chops with Peaches
- Begin by patting the pork chops dry with a paper towel. This step guarantees a gorgeous golden crust. Season both sides of the chops with a pinch of salt and pepper.
- Sear the chops in a pan with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook them for about 5 minutes on one side, then flip them over and continue cooking until they’re fully cooked. Once done, remove them from the pan and set them aside.
- While the pork chops are sizzling, prepare the peaches. Slice them into a generous bowl and toss them with brown sugar.
- Wipe the pork chop pan clean, then melt a knob of butter. Add the peaches and cook them for a few minutes until they release their sweet fragrance. Introduce the chicken stock and thyme, allowing the mixture to simmer for a few more minutes until the liquid reduces by about half. The final touch involves nestling the pork chops, along with their juices, into the pan. Complete the masterpiece by drizzling everything with the enchanting balsamic glaze. Voila!

Tips for a Stellar Peachy Encounter
Unlock the Secrets to Perfect Pork Chops with Peaches
- Opt for ripe peaches that still possess a slight firmness. This ensures they hold their texture and shape during cooking.
- Out of peaches? No worries! Experiment with other stone fruits, such as apricots, nectarines, and plums. The results will still be utterly divine.
- Butter is the key to adding a touch of magic. Not only does it infuse fantastic flavor, but it also aids in caramelizing the peaches.
- We recommend thick-cut boneless pork chops for even cooking and convenience. However, if you prefer bone-in chops, adjust the cooking time accordingly.
- To ensure your pork chops are cooked to perfection, use a meat thermometer to check that they reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
